Recommend to middle schoolers

Submitted by summer reading participant:
This book is about a 14-year-old boy named Finn who has challenged himself to only talk to 15 people this summer until Johanna changed all that. Johanna gives Finn a job for the summer to create his own garden around his house. But Johanna also is battling breast cancer, but Finn and his best best friend Matthew care for Johanna on her crazy journey. Do you want to know what happens to Finn's garden and learn more about their eventful summer? Then you'll have to read the book to find out.

Overall I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend this book to other middle schoolers. My favorite part of the book was when Matthew and Finn run Johanna's triathlon. I would give this book a rating of 8.5/10.
